We strive to create a safe, collaborative space for positive growth, embracing diverse experiences, backgrounds, cultures, and perspectives. We contribute to our local community through social service, economic growth, and fresh food.
We teach youth life skills and provide long-term support to foster stable growth toward independence. We rely on the combined efforts of youth and adults to develop a sustainable social enterprise business, ensuring that our community will grow strong and vibrant for generations to come.
We encourage youth to actively explore their values and goals, and to pursue them with enthusiasm, caring, and commitment. We recognize our responsibility to care for ourselves and for others.
We prioritize balance between different aspects of life, including: Innovation and Tradition, Work and Play, Purpose and Profit
